UVALDE COUNTY, Texas - It's not the kind of surprise you want to find in your house, but Uvalde County deputies say a blue indigo snake found in a person's bedroom is harmless and will be relocated.
The snake was found inside a home in the Uvalde Estates area of the county.
An officer removed the snake, which appeared to be about four or five feet long.
A post on the agency's Facebook page states, "Relocating a rattlesnake-eating blue indigo from someone’s bedroom in Uvalde Estates. #friendlysnake #dontkillthem #sgtsnakelover."
Wildlife experts say the snake is not venomous and is known to eat rattlesnakes.
